Hi,

I just enrolled to do the Diploma online (Careers Australia - Melbourne) and is full time. As I am a mom and have to work at least 3 days a week I am a bit stressed out. I will be starting in July with Careers Australia and would like to know if there is anyone else out there currently studying nursing and working.

Thanks

Hi, I was going to school and working two jobs at the same time.  I know it can be hard, but as long as you have a plan in place you will be just fine.  Here is a link for you to read about below.  Good luck in your future endeavors.

First of all, congratulations on getting into a nursing program that is online.  I have done some online studying and what got me through it are a few things:

1.  Making a schedule for everyday events and studying events.

2.  Make a calendar of everything that I had to do including studying.

3.  Take breaks and do not feel bad about it.  

4. Do clustering studying where you study for 30 minutes to one hour and take a 15 minute break, go over the information that you have just learned, and then learn new information.  

I hope this helps you.  Good luck to you.

That is wonderful that you are going to school and working at the same time.  When I was in nursing school, I went to school full time and worked part time on the weekends at an assisted living facility.  I really liked it because it helped me practice what I was learning in nursing school.  I also liked it because I wanted to make some money for school and help out the residents in the assisted living that I was working at.  I was thankful that I worked there part time while I was in school because it gave me the chance to do an internship downstairs at the adult day care center and they accepted me and wanted me to come work for them after my internship.  So, I worked part time for awhile and eventually it became full time.  I stayed and worked there for about 5 years in the adult day care center.  I was thankful that I worked and went to school at the same time because you never know where or when you will receive a job after you graduate from school until you enter the workforce.  I really think that going to school and working is the best way to go.  I wish you the best and good luck to you.

I really wish that I would have done that now that I look back on my nursing career.  I worked my last year of nursing school, but I really wished that I would have gone ahead and worked the whole time that I was in nursing school.  The reason is because it gives you more of a hands-on experience and it provides you with the basic knowledge of nursing that even textbooks do not teach and that is "real-life experience."  You are so blessed to gain this type of experience at an early start of your nursing career.  My advice would be to cherish it and learn from it as well.  I wish you the very best and please let us know how you are doing in your nursing school and your nursing career.
